26986619 Data show that lactoferrin (LF) increases the catalytic activity of cathepsin G (CatG) at physiological concentration.
26837514 CatG is an essential protease for regulating MHC I molecules
26270939 Patients with certain polymorphisms in the CTSG gene had lower risk for chronic postsurgical pain compared with wild-types.
25248056 expression levels of ELANE and CTSG were determined by quantitative real-time PCR
24929239 These in vivo data provide, for the first time, compelling evidence of the collateral involvement of cathepsin G, NE, and proteinase 3 in cigarette smoke-induced tissue damage and emphysema
24877096 Elastase and cathepsin G are elevated in the plasma of HD patients, originating from primed PMNLs. In these patients, chronic elevation of these enzymes contributes to cleavage of VE-cadherin and possible disruption of endothelial integrity.
24532668 proteolytic cleavage of PLTP by cathepsin G may enhance the injurious inflammatory responses that occur in COPD
23940756 Neutrophil cathepsin G is a physiologic modulator of platelet thrombus formation in vivo and has potential as a target for novel anti-thrombotic therapies.
23466190 Increased concentrations of cathepsins B, D and G in the proliferative eutopic endometrium may play a role in the implantation of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity.
23454598 demonstrate that cathepsin G (CG), neutrophil elastase (NE), and to a lesser extent proteinase 3 (PR3), degrade endocan
